<b><i>A serial killer in Japan is chopping off heads. An unlikely pair of journalists try not to lose theirs.</i></b>

Akio Tsukino is bored. He’s a staff photographer at the Dainichi Daily in Tokyo, stuck in the back pages, shooting parades and grade school plays. When a serial killer starts chopping off heads in nearby Kofu, Akio sees a chance to break out of the routine and prove himself. It never occurs to him he'd find himself in the path of a monster. 

Masami Sato, a top staff writer on the police beat, is a tenacious woman going toe-to-toe with men in a male-dominated arena. When she’s sent to investigate the serial killer, she’ll stop at nothing to get the scoop. If only Akio would get out of her way. 

As they struggle to get along, and ghost stories of evil samurai become the order of the day, Akio and Masami soon realize that the price for getting the story may be their own heads.

Customer Reviews

Fun, Fascinating Genre-Bender!

Headless is not what you might think it is. It manages to meld elements of crime procedurals, buddy commedies, horror, thrillers, and historical fiction. I loved the juxtaposition of modern Japanese locales with historical fiction and mythology. The mystery and sharp writing will keep you turning the pages, and along the way the author gives you countless interesting little details and reflections that will stick with you long after your first read. Highly recommended!
